Blooming with Kindness--retiring!


This is a set that will stay in my stamp library for a looong time! Make sure it's in yours before Blooming with Kindness is retired!

The backgrounds are re-inkers and water on a clear stamp block. Easy and dramatic!

Blue Blooms Butterfly

The Butterflies Thinlits are so easy to use! It takes very little else to make a lovely card. This card will likely end up in the "Mother's Day Collection" for my mom. Shhhh! Don't tell!

A bit of the beautiful Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) behind the cutout draws your eye to the details of the butterfly. I used glue dots to adhere the butterfly body to the DSP.

Pistachio Berry Basket

This basket was inspired by one in Stampin Success, the magazine Stampin Up sends out to demonstrators. I really like the stamping on the basket. It gives it some depth while still allowing the stronger cardstock to create a sturdier basket.

From the Herd

I loved this stamp when I first saw it, and I finally started making cards with it this month! With 7 children, we often feel quite like a "herd," so this is a perfect greeting from our family. I stamped the image on watercolor paper in Staz On Black, then colored with inks and the Aquapainter. To use your inks this way, smoosh (that's the technical term) the lid while the case is closed. When you open it, there's a little puddle/smear of ink for you to dip your Aquapainter in!

There are clouds and sky at the top of the image, but they're hard to see in the photo. The other thing that's hard to see is how I accented the eyes of all the animals:

I used Crystal Effects on all the eyes to bring a little freaky shine to them. {smile}

There are some great sentiments in this set, and I'll be sharing more samples of them soon! The set is available in photopolymer (my preference), clear mount, and wood mount.
